Bel-Air. Home to fresh, flavoursome, feel-good food and sunny Californian vibes, that’ll have you reaching for your surfboard – whatever the weather.
Since opening the doors to their original spot in Shoreditch, Bel-Air have fed over 125,000 hungry locals. Jamie Oliver and Wu-Tang Clan are fans.
Need to brighten up your week? Head over to their new cafe at 12 New Fetter Lane from 30th January 2017. Feast on a ‘Muscle Beach’ breakfast and post workout ‘Warrior Shake’. Get your morning fix with bottomless filter coffee from Ozone or Sandows Nitro cold-brew on tap. Squeeze in a workout beforehand at nearby studios; Gymbox, BOOM Cycle or Ten Health & Fitness – all within a ten minute walk.
Breakfast starts at 7am with features like the Egg Sidecar; two organic eggs, poached or scrambled with your choice of eight sides, from Sesame Labneh with spring onion or zingy Lobster Ceviche.
Try their Fat Stack breakfast bagels, like the Oh-Boy, Brick Lane Bagels loaded in-house with chopped egg, braised onions, coriander, chives and killer Sriracha yoghurt and for those in search of a Bel-Air classic, there will be Pineapple House Granola and a choice of almond milk, Greek yoghurt or Coyo.
Taking inspiration from the city’s melting pot, from Mexico to Little Ethiopia, K-Town to Little Tokyo, lunch will offer fresh, vibrant salads and ‘Hot Stuff’.
Charred Pumpkin Falafel with tangy kale, quinoa and boom chili sauce will sit alongside Ozone Coffee & Cacao Beef Braise, Pollo Chili Verde with coriander rice & blue corn tortillas and Cinco De Mayo roasted sweet potato black bean salad. Are you salivating yet?
True to their LA roots, Bel-Air will be serving up homemade juices on tap, like The RAD, Watermelon, Sea Salt and Lime, free from refined sugar, served in oversized, ice filled cups and if you like it fizzy, ask for a spritzer.
Your lunch hour just got a major upgrade.
